money saving weather

February 1st, 2012 at 03:37 am

wow, It was in the upper 60's today, so we turned the heat off and opened the windows. Was wonderful!!

Also spent some time outdoors planting flower bulbs, adding compost and fertlizer to the raised garden beds, removed 2 dead trees from the orchard, staked a cherry tree that started to lean and played with a new baby calf (it likes to play chase and tag).

I hope a lot of people got out today, to help put an end to the flu that is going around here,as it is bad. Several school districts have closed their doors on either a Fri or Mon hoping students would have a longer weekend to all get well.

Extra Income

January 27th, 2012 at 05:06 am

I am a stay at home, homeschooling mom, by choice. I do like to help contribute to our income. I have a rental property, but that mostly stays in the rental account.

So, I do some as needed childcare for a couple of nurses, and also teach American Heart CPR, First Aid and a few more classes.

Some months its nothing, but THIS month, which is not yet over, has been good. So far, $210 in childcare and $530 for CPR and first aid classes......

i'm not complaining!
